Jayson Tatum is one of the brightest talents in the league currently. He is an amazing scorer who can play either forward position, and his ability to create his shot has long been praised by many people around the league. Jayson Tatum is currently having an All-NBA caliber season, averaging 25.7 PPG, 8.4 RPG, and 4.2 APG.
There is no question that former players appreciate Jayson Tatum's game. Gilbert Arenas once even claimed that Jayson Tatum's game will be on Kobe Bryant's level. It seems as though the latest person to share his admiration for Jayson Tatum is Allen Iverson.
In a recent Tweet, Jayson Tatum revealed that Allen Iverson tells him he loves his game "every time" they see one another. Tatum added that it means "everything coming from him". Allen Iverson is well-respected among players, so one can easily see why Jayson Tatum would appreciate the praise coming from the 76ers legend.
A.I tell me he love my game every time I see him…. that mean everything coming from him
It is easy to see why Allen Iverson would appreciate Jayson Tatum's game. During his playing days, Allen Iverson was well-known for being a scoring machine who could also get his own shots one-on-one, similar to Jayson Tatum. The two obviously played different positions, but there are some similarities in the ways they approach the game.
Hopefully, Jayson Tatum can continue playing at a high level in the future, and recently his team has been performing well along with him. The Boston Celtics have won 15 of their last 20 games, and there's no doubt that the team as a whole looks like they may be able to make the playoffs outright at the end of the season, rather than having to play in the play-in tournament. The Boston Celtics have looked like a dangerous defensive team recently, and they'll be a tough matchup for anyone in the playoffs.
